Neil Carroll’s practice explores the ability of pictorial space to meaningfully express and embody a perceived shift in how we conceptually construct the anthropological condition of the human figure and the contemporary space it occupies.
Neil Carroll's practice explores the ability of pictorial space to meaningfully express and embody a perceived shift in how we conceptually construct the anthropological condition of the human figure and the contemporary space it occupies. It tries to manifest these changes by re-negotiating with the painting format in a broader sense, breaking with the traditional bounds of representative, objective, architectural and urban space and forming a relationship with a more abstract, dynamic and transformable space.
‘Spatial constructions’ are created that use materials such as household paints, wood, plaster and metal, which often move beyond the stretcher frame, assuming different forms.
Atrium Space features TBG+S studio artists who are invited to exhibit their work in the Atrium of the TBG+S building. The intention is to create an active space outside of the studio and the gallery to exhibit finished work or work in progress. To view the current featured artist's work, visit the gallery between Tuesday and Saturday from 11am to 6pm and ask the invigilator for access to the work on show.
